Patients with gluteus minimus and medius tears that fail nonoperative management may be indicated for surgical repair; however, structural failure after gluteal tendon repair remains unacceptably high. This is likely related to the limited healing potential of tendinous tissue, which is poorly vascular and heals by formation of fibrocartilaginous scar tissue rather than histologically normal tendon. An emerging option to augment tendon healing is the use of a bioinductive implant that is designed to amplify the host healing response and induce the formation of healthy tendon tissue...

BACKGROUND: Saksenaea erythrospora is an emerging and recently described pathogenic fungus mainly causing invasive cutaneous infections. Globally, very few human cases, caused by S. erythrospora, have been reported. In India, among the genus Saksenaea, S. vasiformis was the only reported pathogenic species, until recently when a case of fungal rhinosinusitis was reported to be caused by S. erythrospora. We observed five human cases of necrotizing skin and soft tissue infections caused by S...

BACKGROUND: The direct anterior approach (DAA) to the hip has been criticized as an approach that is limited to primary arthroplasty only. Our study objective was to demonstrate, in a cadaveric setting, that an alternate extension of the DAA can be used to reach the femur at the posterior border of the lateral vastus muscle without endangering the nerve supply. METHODS: The iliotibial tract is split anteriorly and pulled laterally, thereby opening the interval to the lateral-posterior aspect of the vastus muscle...

BACKGROUND: The first results from the randomized, controlled iFuse Implant System Minimally Invasive Arthrodesis (iMIA) trial showed that minimally invasive surgical management (MISM) of low back pain originating from the sacroiliac joint (SIJ) by placing transarticular triangular titanium implants reduced pain more effectively than conservative management (CM). We now conducted a separate analysis of the iMIA data to assess whether the referred leg pain (RLP) component of SIJ-associated pain may also be affected by MISM or CM...

Repair of isolated iliac aneurysm with stentgraft implantation and internal iliac coverage may induce significant type ll endoleak from patent internal iliac refilling leading to ongoing aneurysm growth. Subsequent treatment of such complication can be challenging especially in case of bilateral iliac involvement. Open repair is technically demanding and often high risk procedure, while embolization via transfemoral approach is unviable due to the stentgraft coverage precluding direct antegrade access between the common and the internal iliac lumen...

Gallium-67 citrate has long been used for imaging of infection and inflammation. Although gallium-67 uptake due to silicone implants and silicone injections has been previously reported in the literature, very few cases are documented. We report a case of increased gallium-67 uptake in the buttocks in a patient who previously received silicone injections in the buttocks, to reemphasize silicone augmentation as a potential source of gallium-67 uptake. In addition, we present a F-18-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) PET/CT scan from the same patient to demonstrate mild diffuse FDG uptake in the buttocks in the region of previous silicone injection...

Spinal cord stimulation as treatment of chronic low back pain via neuromodulation has been frequently performed in recent years. The dorsal column is stimulated by an electrode placed at the epidural region. In the case presently described, subcutaneous lead was implanted in a patient with failed back syndrome after spinal cord stimulation was inadequate to treat back and gluteal pain. A 65-year-old male had undergone surgery to treat lumbar disc herniation, after which he received physical therapy and multiple steroid injections due to unrelieved pain...

BACKGROUND: Augmentation gluteoplasty has been performed more frequently in the past decade, with over 21,000 procedures performed in the past year alone. The most popular methods for buttock augmentation involve silicone prostheses and autologous fat grafting. A comparison of complications of these two techniques does not exist in our literature. METHODS: The PubMed, MEDLINE, and Cochrane databases were searched through April of 2015 for studies that achieved buttock augmentation through the use of silicone implant placement or autologous lipoinjection...

Breast cancer is a ubiquitous disease and one of the leading causes of death in women in western societies. With overall increasing survival rates, the number of patients who need post-mastectomy reconstruction is on the rise. Especially since its psychological benefits have been broadly recognized, breast reconstruction has become a key component of breast cancer treatment. Evolving from the early beginnings of breast reconstruction with synthetic implants in the 1960s, microsurgical tissue transfer is on the way to become the gold standard for post oncology restoration of the breast...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the results of gluteal suspension with polypropylene strips. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Ninety healthy female patients between the ages of 20 and 50 years (mean, 26 years), who wished to remodel their buttocks from December 2004 to February 2013 were studied retrospectively. All 90 patients were treated with 2 strips of polypropylene on each buttock using the following procedures: 27 (30 %) patients were suspended with polypropylene strips; 63 (70 %) patients were treated with tumescent liposuction in the sacral "V", lower back, supragluteal regions, and flanks to improve buttocks contour (aspirated volume of fat from 350 to 800 cc); 16 (18 %) patients underwent fat grafting in the subcutaneous and intramuscular layers (up to 300 cc in each buttock to increase volume); 5 (6 %) patients received implants to increase volume; and 4 (4...

We present a case of enlarged bursa with calcified/ossified walls presenting as pseudo tumor in the left gluteal region over an indwelling protruded tip of a K nail implanted 18 years back in a 35 years old male. The patient had received initial treatment from a quack and subsequently from a qualified physician before coming to us and was referred to us with a provisional diagnosis of some soft tissue tumor. Removal of the nail and the bursa resulted in complete recovery and full function.

OBJECTIVES: Iliac branch grafts (IBGs) are a validated option for the treatment of aorto-iliac aneurysms preserving internal iliac artery (IIA) flow. IIA aneurysm (IIAA) is a relative contraindication to IBG placement. The goal of this study was to review experience in managing aorto-iliac aneurysms with concomitant IIAAs with extension of the IIA branch stent graft into the superior gluteal artery (SGA). METHODS: This retrospective study between May 2009 and November 2014 includes consecutive patients who underwent placement of an IBG (Cook, Bloomington, IN, USA) with extension of the internal iliac component of the branch stent graft into the SGA because of aneurysmal IIA (>15 mm)...
